Raining Again: Fourth Ode Allusion


 

IMG_20140303_064335_333-1-1

It’s raining,

A steady pattering, drumming, pounding, dripping,

An opulent message from the most divine,

Aphrodite’s heart-beat on the land,

Love’s Law binding an earthly exchange,

Earth and sky, fire and water,

Lips and tongues, soul and mind,

Her swelling heart welcoming the rain,

Those glittering eyes of desire,

Guided by the Goddess’ own hand,

To embers stoked in immortal power,

Sacred water at the lips of Earth’s warm embrace,

An insatiable heat, an unstoppable blood throb,

An impatient tongue’s taste for fire,

Fate reigning on tangled hearts,

A destiny set at birth,

Stars aligned for an eternity,

Love’s Law storming at the gates of love’s free will

In libation to her thirst.

      Kiitos 🙂 ❤ Thank you Noora! You are my inspiration. You know that my other main duty besides making you spill your morning coffee is to render you speechless. Have a wonderful day!
